Welcome to IxD Belfast

Interaction design is all around us. The emergence of devices like Apple’s iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Amazon’s Echo, has – in a very short space of time – revolutionised how we interact with one another.

Apps like Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram are changing our behaviour and there’s a growing need for designers with the skills and creative thinking required to design apps such as these and for apps and digital products yet to be conceived.

The course is highly rated by industry professionals and benefits from partnerships with world-class companies such as Google, Deloitte Digital, Square,, and others. A degree in Interaction Design will offer opportunities in a wide range of exciting and very well-paid roles, including app design and web design; user experience and user interface design; virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR); and digital product design.

This highly creative, design-centred course is aimed at students aspiring to a career as an interaction designer, helping to shape the digital landscape we live in. The course equips you with the skills you need to meet the challenges of a dynamic and rapidly changing industry which offers many exciting and well paid career opportunities.
